The closest I have had is mid winter rain storms tripping my GFCI and
allowing my pond to back out and drain. Luckily my Mom was babysitting and
called me to let me know the lights all went out in the garage ( was on that
circuit at the time) and I was saved finding my pond refroze two foot lower
on the top level under a sheet of ice. Not to mention pumps froze up and the
other problems of power loss in winter and two teir ponds with bad check
valves ( read cheap rubber flappers).

I also had this happen on my new line I ran out just for the pond earlier
this fall. Leaving for work the next day I thought the top pond looked
awfully low. Turned out the " outdoor" recepticle was not so outdoorsworthy.
Back to a bucket sitting over the top and nailed to the ground to keep rain
off of it.
